Nutcracker Magic

For the past several years our friends and fellow Nutcracker parents, Jim and Sue, threw a Nutcracker Magic Party after a performance of the show. It was was always a festive occasion with an beautiful food, fine wines, a fanciful magic show, and performance of the People's Nutcracker (performed by the parents and children)! Sadly our friends' children have out grown performing in the Nutcracker....so this year we invited them to our house to recapture a little Nutcracker Magic.
Our friends brought us the most beautiful bouquet of holiday flowers and joined a very merry crowd of our friends who have been to the Nutcracker or will be going in the coming days! Several cast members also joined the festivities with their families. Children ate cookies and made pizza while the adults drank champagne and enjoyed appetizers and then as if by magic the children began to dance.

They performed the battle scene and the entire second act...and somewhere in the middle the guys made a second beer run! At least they bought brands featuring holiday colors!

Special thanks to the Richards for making the trip in to see the show! It was great to see you both and have you share this special time with our family!

Our family had a wonderful day. Emma & Finn were a joy to watch perform, and we had a great evening. Thanks again.
